Your privacy is very important to us. It is the policy of Kitchen Spirit to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site.
Website Visitors & Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Like most website operators, Kitchen Spirit, hereinafter referred to as “the company,” collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website.
We do not collect any personal information from Visitors when they use the Website unless they provide such information voluntarily, such as by registering or sending us an email or signing up for a newsletter. All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.” The amount and type of information gathered depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, if the comment section of the website blog is activated, visitors who leave comments may be asked to provide a username and email address. And for those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, the website collects only such information necessary to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with website. The company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The company also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs (if the comment section is activated). The company only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

If the comment option is activated, Visitor comments and other content may be submitted to Akismet anti-spam service, and are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future.
Use of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The company discloses potentially personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that need to know that information in order to process it on the company’s behalf or to provide services available at or through the website, and in addition, have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The company will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. The company will disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other legally served governmental request, or when the company believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the company, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of the company’s website and have supplied your email address, the company may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or keep you updated with new and/or updated information.
How We Protect the Information
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of the company database, nor can we guarantee that the Information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. Since e-mail sent to or from the Website is especially vulnerable, we suggest taking special care in deciding what information you send to us via email.

If a parent or guardian believes that the company has in its database the personally-identifiable information of a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately using the email address privacy@kitchenSpirit.com and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
If the company is sold, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the company goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that may be transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the company may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
